CRIMSON AND GREY DAY & ONLINE AUCTION—WHAT IS IT?
The Parents’ Association is excited to announce that we are having a new event this spring
in place of Puttin’on the Dawg. Crimson and Grey Day will be held on March 17th
as a finale to our Online Auction. Crimson and Grey Day will celebrate our students and families
by giving them the opportunity to bring back a tradition that hasn’t taken place since 1994.
Crimson and Grey Day is none other than a field day for the students that will be in conjunction
with our annual online auction. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to come on campus
that day to watch their child/grandchild participate in games and enjoy food and company while
they view auction items available for bidding.
